According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, something major would have to happen between the Baltimore Ravens and Ray Rice over the weekend in order to get a long-term deal done by Monday afternoon.
It doesn’t look good at this point. The Ravens and Rice will likely have to wait until the regular season is over before they can start negotiating again. Don’t worry Ravens fans he won’t miss any games.

In an interview with the Baltimore Sun, Ravens’ unsigned franchise player Ray Rice says he’s “optimistic” about getting a new deal from the Ravens ahead of Monday’s 4 PM ET deadline. While Rice may be “optimistic,” NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora is not so much. La Canfora reported earlier this week that talks were in a “stalemate,” while a report from the Carroll...

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSPorts.com, if safety Tyvon Branch and the Raiders are able to agree on a new contract soon, it would help the 49ers and Dashon Goldson get something worked out before Monday’s deadline, since they’d then have a nice template to go by.
Goldson had a break out year in 2011 and will have to prove this season that it wasn’t a fluke.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the Oakland Raiders and safety Tyvon Branch are close to agreeing on a long-term extension.
Last week both the Raiders and Branch’s reps made some major progress, per La Canfora’s source’s.
La Canfora indicated that it’s not a matter of if a deal gets done, but when.
According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the Chicago Bears and running back Matt Forte have made “considerable progress” towards agreeing on a long-term extension, per league sources.
The Bears and Forte’s reps are still trying to work out how much he would make on average over the first three years of the deal.

NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, who has been the go to source on all things franchise player related this week, puts the odds for Wes Welker signing a long term deal with the Patriots at “50/50″.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com, the Kansas City Chiefs and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe have “gone nowhere” when it comes to getting a long-term extension worked out.
Right now it looks like Bowe will play out the 2012 season under the franchise tag, then possibly hit the free agent market.
According to NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora, talks between Dwayne Bowe and the Chiefs have “gone nowhere.” With just 2 days left before Monday’s 4 PM ET deadline for franchise players to sign long term deals, it looks highly unlikely that anything will get done between Bowe and the Chiefs. This offseason has been very light on news regarding Bowe and the Chiefs and for good...
